Koumaria Residency DAY #7 – 1 Oct 2016

Saturday at Koumaria, the second in a row. Seven days of ideas, projections, trials, shootings and rehearsals. Saturday of improvisation. Saturday of editing and audits. Eating, then eating again, having Greek coffee. Lucia wakes up very early for her daily sunrise shooting. This time, she makes the last test shoot before the real one, happening tomorrow. Nadav and Gabriella are out from 8 to 11 in the morning to go through their performance by an abandoned car. Later on, Toi and Gabriella work with Panos at the editing of the performance at the trashing floor. Dirar works on the editing of the video about memory and running, plus he starts building the concept for a short movie about national identity: he is trying to investigate the concept of the land, questioning who is the real owner of a land and where we can actually talk about identity related to a land today. In the afternoon Nadav, Rah, Rasmus, Gabriella and Toi are standing in circle in Koumaria’s garden, creating a concept for the performance on hospitality that Toi has in mind to do. We also shoot Lucia and then Dirar’s interviews, together with Alex and Eric’s.

Ah, and today is Eric’s birthday. That means, we are going to celebrate it with food and wine!
